Job seekers are up against multiple hurdles these days as they look for meaningful work. While poorly written job descriptions and malfunctioning career sites hinder the job search, they now must face an even higher hurdle -- the algorithm.

Most job search websites have increased the use of software that uses complex algorithms to screen and sort resumes by searching for keywords that match specific skill sets and experience. Other programs, like LinkedIn’s “Recruiter,” can help talent managers find passive candidates by searching for a specific location, title or skill.

I was born in July 1963, several months before a defining moment for the Baby Boomer generation occurred—the assassination of President John F. Kennedy.  I was a “latch key kid” – I walked home from elementary school to an empty house because both of my parents worked.  In fact, I started walking to school by myself in first grade after everyone else had left the house. I wasn’t supposed to use the record player but nearly every morning I used those few minutes before school to play a 45 of Tommy Roe’s hit song “Dizzy” over and over again.
